The stalling of offensive of the occupiers in Ukraine is allegedly due to the fact that the russian troops decided to reduce the number of destruction and casualties among the civilian population. This version of the failures of the occupation corps was voiced by russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu at a meeting of the heads of the SCO defense ministries, - russian media write.

"The strikes are carried out with high-precision weapons at military infrastructure facilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine - command posts, airfields, warehouses, fortified areas and military-industrial complex facilities. At the same time, everything is done to avoid civilian casualties. Of course, this slows down the pace of the offensive, but we are moving forward deliberately", - the head of the military department of the aggressor country cynically lies.

Shoigu hypocritically assures that "Russia strictly adheres to the norms of humanitarian law".

As previously reported, the russian army in Ukraine is using scorched earth tactics, destroying everything in its path.
